Dolphins Quarterback Turns to Judo to Ward Off Concussions

Tua Tagovailoa
Miami Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa had an outstanding NFL season marred by a pair of brutal concussions, both caused by his head hitting the ground after being tackled. But Tagovailoa said he may have found a solution to his problem in the form of judo training.

Speaking on several radio shows during Super Bowl week in Phoenix, Tagovailoa said he wanted to learn how to fall properly so as to avoid further injuries.

Tagovailoa told Sports Illustrated, "Once a week, every Friday, I take a judo class so it will help with me understanding my body more and then learning how to fall."

UFC fighter Conor McGregor recently said knowing how to fall from judo and wrestling training saved his life when a car hit him while he was bike riding.
